Joseph Haydn
JOSEPH HAYDN (/ˈdʒoʊzəf ˈhaɪdən/ ; German: ( listen ); 31 March 1732 – 31 May 1809) was an Austrian composer of the Classical period . He was instrumental in the development of chamber music such as the piano trio and his contributions to musical form have earned him the epithets "Father of the Symphony " and "Father of the String Quartet ". Haydn spent much of his career as a court musician for the wealthy Esterházy family at their remote estate. Until the later part of his life, this isolated him from other composers and trends in music so that he was, as he put it, "forced to become original". Yet his music circulated widely and for much of his career he was the most celebrated composer in Europe. He was a friend and mentor of Mozart , a teacher of Beethoven , and the older brother of composer Michael Haydn

Keyboard Concerto No. 11 (Haydn)
Joseph Haydn\'s KEYBOARD CONCERTO NO. 11 IN D MAJOR (Hob. XVIII/11) was written between 1780 and 1783, and published in 1784. It was originally composed for harpsichord or fortepiano and scored for an orchestra in a relatively undeveloped galant style evident in his early works, and has a lively Hungarian Rondo finale. On the other hand, being a somewhat later composition, it also shows more similarities to Mozart\'s piano concertos than do Haydn's other keyboard concertos. Haydn and Mozart had probably become acquainted by 1784, which may explain the Mozartian influences that are discernible in the work. It consists of three movements: * Vivace * Un poco adagio * Rondo all'UngareseThe first and second movements contain cadenzas . The original cadenzas, written by Haydn himself, have survived. REFERENCES * ^ A B Roeder, Michael Thomas (1994). A History of the Concerto. Hal Leonard. p. 170. ISBN 9780931340611
